Meta Textiles: Sewing the Second Skin

March 29, 1996 - May 26, 1996


Curator:
Year 1996 Theme Feminisms, Gender & Sexuality, Nova Scotian Artists, Textiles

In Meta Textiles, Curatorial Assistant Gary Markle brought together selected works by Naoko Furue and Gillian Collyer (both of Halifax), Neil MacInnis (Chicago) and Patrick Traer (Saskatoon).

These artists engaged the notion of “second skin” from disparate perspectives, though a spare, minimal sensibility linked their approaches to textile media. The strikingly elegant installation was enlivened by a number of intensive artists’ talks, and was well attended by individuals and groups.
